The 10th edition of the European poker tour has begun and Nick Javas thought it might be appropriate to celebrate it with a rap video. In less than 4 minutes, the artist wraps up the most important events of the first nine EPTs and makes some wild props about what might happen at the end of season 10.Liv Boeree is used to being in the spotlight as she is one of the most popular members of the poker community with plenty of fans beyond the borders of Great Britain. Nevertheless, she was pleasantly surprised to see that she was included in this anniversary rap video:
I’m in a rap video!!! Check out this new song celebrating 10 years of the EPT.. http://t.co/ZXfttZHlkW
Jason Mercier was equally delighted to find out that Nick Javas raps about him for a couple of seconds in the 3:36 minute long video. It comes as no surprise that he was chosen, given his performance at past events and in online tournaments.

Matthias De Meulder is yet to achieve a memorable result at the European Poker Tour, but was just as thrilled to share the video with his fans:

Arguably one of the most experienced poker players in the world, Barry Greenstein has seen it all at the poker tables, but even the veteran found it worthwhile to share the video on Twitter:
We’ll be seeing and hearing this rap video at every EPT event this season: Ride on the River.

One can only imagine the surprise of Eugene Katchalov who saw himself in a funny rap video, although this makes perfect sense as the video captures the very essence of the EPT and Eugene is an integrate part of it:

In his video, Nick Javas talks about how no poker player has won a main event twice and cites Bertrand Grospellier among the favourites to break the ice. The French player will be trying to meet these high expectations, but meanwhile he shared the rap video with his followers on Twitter:
